   For this stop today I have for you an excerpt from Poisoned Emerald itself! I hope you enjoy!

The Poisoned Emerald by Sasha & Sarena Nanua

Release Date: September 2014
Publisher: iUniverse
Series: The Pendant Trilogy

Description from GoodReads:

   The poison is spreading....

   I wrapped myself in the portal’s embrace and felt my feet land on a new surface. I stood on a sandy beach that was wet and damp, causing the ground to stick to my shoes. The portal snapped shut, and I felt misty rain dance on my shoulders. Thunder sounded from overhead, and before I could comprehend the impending storm, a gash of lightning hit the hill just to the right of the river. The ground quaked below me before an explosion of sand burst from the ground.

   AS WINTER ARRIVES Arica Miller is back to regular school life at Hill Valley. After resolving the disappearance of the King’s Jewel and returning it safely, Arica doesn’t expect anything else to go wrong. Too soon does Arica learn that a great evil—a poison—has spread through the Sorcerers Underworld, threatening to take away all magic. And worse, the only person who can save the magical world has been kidnapped: the king. In order to find the king, Arica and her friends must follow an ancient prophecy in which they must defeat vicious creatures, travel through mysterious forests, and restore peace to the poisoned land—no matter how dangerous it could be … In this final installment of The Pendant Trilogy, Arica learns of dark pasts, unknowable futures, and the truth of the pendant’s origin. Arica doesn’t have much time left—and if she fails, the mortal and the magical worlds are both at stake.

Something cold. Something very, very cold.
   That was my first sensation, though I didn’t have much time to think of it. The scenery before me was ice again—pure ice, except now the ice was so close I could almost touch it …
   “No!” someone cried, but the voice was soon muffled. I knew that voice. Janine. My cousin. Where was she? Where had everyone gone? It wasn’t until that moment that I realized something was holding me. Something cool wrapped around my waist, as large as a pond, gripping me. My head lifted and then leaned backward. It took a moment for my eyes to adjust and truly understand what I was looking at. 
   The face was made of ice. It had two devilishly cold eyes almost as large as the moon. 
   “Child is awake,” it said, cool mist running from the Ice Giant’s mouth. “It’s dinner time.”

   That was a lovely excerpt! I hope you guys are all excited for Poisoned Emerald like I am! Thanks for stopping by!
